It was a soup kind ofΒ day today. πŸ™‚ I pulled out the crockpot, peeled some potato’s and made me some cheesy potato soup, well there was 6 hours between all of that but it was nice to run errands and do some chores while dinner cooked away. Some nights I just like having a nice hearty bowl of soup with some bread, its comfort food to me at it’s best, especially when it is cold out! This soup is full of potato’s and cheese, all forΒ 3 smart points per 1 cup serving.
